Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has fired former general manager and current president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest who’d been with the team since 2002.

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reported last week that Loria had essentially pushed Beinfest aside in order to make most of the baseball decisions himself quoting a source who said “he has marginalized the front office.” And then Beinfest went on the local radio and uncharacteristically revealed details about his less than ideal working conditions.
